PARAMUS, New Jersey, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

 

Vivo, a subsidiary of Telefonica Brazil, is the country's largest mobile operator

Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced that Vivo, a subsidiary of Telefonica Brazil, has selected Ceragon as its wireless backhaul partner for the next phase of its nationwide LTE network.  With orders valued at over $6 million, Ceragon is supplying Vivo with a range of short haul solutions based on its FibeAir ® family of products as well as a full range of turnkey services.

"After years of working with Ceragon's solutions, we are convinced that Ceragon has the expertise, reach and technological vision to meet Vivo's target to achieve full LTE coverage before the World Cup in 2014," said Leonardo Capdeville, Network Director at Vivo. "We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship as we roll out our advanced LTE network." 

"With the 2014 World Cup looming on the horizon, Brazil's operators are all racing to deploy their LTE networks," said Ira Palti, Ceragon's President and CEO. "Ceragon is excited to play a part in this nationwide LTE deployment and to continue to build out the infrastructure for future growth."

The current agreement is in addition to Ceragon's global partnership with Telefonica. Ceragon is currently active in Telefonica deployments in 6 national markets.
